NEW YORK (AP) -- The Oscars are a ratings dud. Nielsen Media Research says preliminary ratings for the 80th annual Academy Awards telecast are 14 percent lower than the least-watched ceremony ever.

Nielsen said Monday that overnight ratings are also 21 percent lower than last year, when "The Departed" was named best picture.

The least-watched Oscars ceremony ever was in 2003, when there were 33 million viewers.

Nielsen has no estimate yet on how many people watched Sunday night, but based on ratings from the nation's biggest markets, the Oscars will be hard-pressed to avoid an ignominious record.

The show had a 21.9 rating and 33 share.

Does anyone else often wonder how accurate these Nielsen ratings really are?

I was a Nielsen house once and we didn't have the box attached to our TV to keep an accurate record, we had a booklet to fill out and keep track of what we watched. So, uh, I can tell you...not so accurate.

you're right.. on them...



edit: didn't he pass away after Jan 31? Cuz if so then that's why he wasn't in the montage. The montage was for the year 1/07 to 1/31/08.

I was a Nielsen family just last week and the weeks run from Thursday to Thursday and then they ask you to send the books back. So even if they have some super fast mail delivery of the booklets, i still dont' see how they could get information for a Sunday broadcast by Monday morning.

I always thought they tapped in to people's cable boxes or something, but they told me it was all done by the diaries they ask you to keep. So even though i've been a part of it, i still don't know how the hell it all works.

Nielsen wanted us to be a "family", but I didn't like the idea of having them have to install something into every TV we owned and then record our viewing habits Wasn't worth the money
